M is for Misunderstanding #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Feelings and Emotions from A to Z in 55 Words. Today, M is for Misunderstanding.



With his pen hovering over the notepad, the waiter asked, “Super Salad?”

I said, “Sure, why not!”

He gave me a frosty look and repeated with emphasis, “Su… per… Salad?”

“Yes, I’d like a Super Salad!”, I answered pleasantly.

He looked daggers at me, when my friend nudged and whispered, “He’s asking, Soup or Salad?”

Join me in enjoying blogs from fellow A to Zers… Monica Deshpande and Mayuri today! Do share some blog love with them too! :)

  1. Hilarious. This really happened to a friend of mine at a consulate when she went to get a visa. (She wrote a post about it.) The clerk was telling everyone waiting to get a visa that they all should submit “virginal documents”. It took a while for people to understand he is asking for original documents.

    • OMG!! That’s sooo funny! πŸ˜€
      I heard about this story of ‘Super Salad’ in one of our Communication Skills workshop. The trainer gave this as one of the example and thinking about it always brings a smile πŸ™‚

  2. Hahahaha this reminds me of an advertisement that used to come sometime back. It was about some washing powder where in a guy stilling in a restaurant says, “Maine kaha Daal do(Lentil soup), aur waiter ne daal diya (he poured it on me)”- pointing towards his white shirt! πŸ˜€

  3. This has happened to me so many times. I can never understand different accents, specially happens when I visit Chinese restaurants. Good one πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much, Lisa for your visit here and the kind words too. Glad you enjoyed reading the posts here. Looking forward to read you too πŸ™‚

  4. Ha ha ! Been there, and done that πŸ˜›

    There have been instances when I misunderstand and few others when I am misunderstood. More recently, when I said – “Full tank” to the person at the gas station, he pondered and asked me – “For how much do you want me to fill up?” 😯
